mental health//the crazy list

Sometimes it feels like I have fifty-hundred mental issues so I have resorted to just classifying them as "crazy". My "crazy pills". Having a "crazy day/moment/life". I know, I know... But, look, it doesn't make me feel bad about myself {it actually helps make it feel fun almost} and I don't call anyone else crazy, so let me have this one okay?

Lately, I've been feeling kind of like being "crazy" is ludicrous or, well, even more ludicrous than usual and, so, I've started writing a list of everything that brings about an anxiety attack, panic attack, some lovely depression or a ptsd flash --

1. Going to the dentist. I had my teeth cleaned and the combination of not being able to move and having fifty things in my mouth {lol} and not knowing what was happening caused me to freak the fuck out. I couldn't breathe, could barely walk. So I kind of collapsed into the car and just started scream crying. Fun.

2. Having a facial. Enclosed room. Hot room. Someone touching me. Lying still for an hour. Not having anything to occupy me. Soothing music that was anything but. Addition of eye treatment didn't help. Never again.

3. Not being able to spend money.

4. Spending money.

5. Crowds -- why won't everyone go away? Am I going to die?
